Be Sure to Shop in Hailsham in the Run Up to Christmas

Shopping & Retail

A message from Mickey Caira, Deputy Town Clerk & Business Enterprise Manager at Hailsham Town Council:

“Hailsham has everything you need for a fantastic Christmas. We have a wonderful range of shops and I would like to encourage everyone to spend locally and support our own traders as much as possible. Visitors from outside Hailsham are also encouraged to shop here and are welcome!

Hailsham has a great selection of independent and High Street retailers who can help make Christmas 2022 perfect for you. It’s perfectly feasible to do all your Christmas shopping in a town like Hailsham. We’re spoilt for choice in the town centre – whether having a bite to eat at some quality restaurants, or for a festive drink at the many bars and pubs.

You can buy Christmas gifts from a range of independent shops selling bespoke and interesting items and our town centre florists will have Christmas wreaths to decorate your front door or dining room table. And many local hair and beauty salons have special Christmas offers available, so why not treat someone you love to a bit of pampering!

Don’t forget there are also many shops in Hailsham selling a large range of Christmas cards and wrapping paper and there is ample free parking available in and around the town centre.

I’d also like to mention the Hailsham Card loyalty scheme – available at the High Street Post Office – which gives shoppers a great incentive to use town centre shops, offering exclusive discounts on independent shops and services.

The Hailsham Card is available to purchase from participating outlets for just £12 and cardholders can receive unlimited local discounts from all the local businesses that are part of the scheme.

Furthermore, why not check out the smartphone-accessible Hailsham Town & Shopping Guide, whereby a number of local shops, businesses and leisure providers are listed, another resource to help residents look for products and services closer to home. The directory can be accessed by visiting

From shopping to eating and from activities to festive entertainment, there really is something for everyone to experience in Hailsham during the festive period!”
